Doug- the long suffering husband

Postby tvldiva » Thu Mar 05, 2009 8:36 pm

I think I just spotted David Costabile (Doug) on a T-mobile commercial. I tried to find it on Youtube or something but nothing. :doh:

Is that the commercial where the daughter says her friend's Gramma thinks he's "super-delicious?" That cracks me up.... :lol:
I thought he was familiar but couldn't place him.

Damn not having HBO!!

Just saw him on a commercial for Netflix. He's at the video store and takes the last movie that the "main character" of the commercial rushed to the movie store to get.

It's like a "blink and you'll miss him" type thing.

I haven't seen that one yet... But the T-Mobile one is hilarious! "She thinks you're super delicious." :rolls:

I still feel bad that I didn't include his character in either one of my games...

David Costabile had a role in this season's Breaking Bad- not a big role but it turned out to be pretty central to the next turn Walt will take next season!

David's playing a character whose job should be looked at as contemptible but he plays it so sweetly and professionally....and the bit of home-life they showed us last night was brilliant. I wanted to hang out with him and give him a hug! (Plus, he had a Stephen King book on his table, lol.)

But did Jessy shoot him point-blank in the face?? I don't think he did....it looked to Tom and I like he moved the gun to the right just before he fired. What a finale!! So not what I'd expected!

If I had my way, every actor on that show would win an Emmy!

There's a scene from last night that just had me smiling through the whole thing. David is at home singing along with an Italian song called Crapa Pelada. It's very fast and high-pitched in spots....and he sings along perfectly. :) It was pretty sweet. I can't find it anywhere yet, but when I do, I'll post it. Weel, I can find other people singing it, but I want the clip from last night! :D

All the more reason to catch up on my Breaking Bad viewing!
I met him the second night at Radio City as we were filing out, and I asked him if he really played the harp in the final show. He was happily surprised, and said yes. He's such a versatile performer with so much to offer!

Bumping this up, Laura, after seeing David in Breaking Bad. Unbelievable. I think Jesse moved the gun, but he got him in the eye, man.

I know-ugh! Still so good! Didn't you just love Gale and hate to see him go? *sigh*

I miss it. I miss all of them...
